Im new at being a mother. Well Im due August 31. Im confused about alot of things. I made a mistake and slept with two guys but they were two weeks apart. Im not alone I have the support of my entire family. I just get worried because of who the father might be. It was a huge mistake. I have a baby girl to look forward to. I guess my question is why are due dates off? Like for Example I have 2 due dates the first one is September 1st then the second one is August 31st. Doesnt really matter Im happy about the baby. I just need guidance help advice maybe? How do I get the DNA test done without spemding very much. HELP. So far I have 100% healthy baby all I want to do is be a good mother at 21 years old.

Due dates are educated guesses based on the date of your last period, and how developed the baby is. It's a guess. Having one day difference is no big. Relax.

The fathers: once the baby is born file for child support with the child support enforcement office in your state. They will handle paternity. No worries.

Do both potential fathers know about each other? Let them pay for the tests to be done. One of them is going to be let off the hook for maintenance so they will be pleased to pay for a test it is much cheaper than paying for a child for the rest of their life.

Due dates are only recommendations. They are a guide if intervention is needed. First time mothers normally go over their date and hospitals normally step in 10 days over due. Nothing to worry about as your dates are so close.

My advice to you is concerntrate on your baby and let these men sort it out for themselves. I hope all turns out for the best!
